ABOUT

Having trained in Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, Amanda's approach to practice is investigative, driven by research and material processes.

With a real passion for the material, Amanda graduated
in 2014 with a First Class Honours and went straight on to establish her own business as a ceramics designer-maker. She currently produces her work at studio in Hong Kong.

Being born in an Eastern culture from Hong Kong but also being educated in the West has provided her a unique perspective on how design can be used, combining with a dedication in craftsmanship. The stories behind different cultures and traditional rituals are so intriguing that she often finds herself delving into the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ - and eventually they all serve as inspirations to her design work.

The creative process in ceramics is much like undertaking a journey. It fuels inquisitive discovery and brings infinite surprises; countless trials and errors and unpredictable results. Maintaining a persistent and positive approach is key to her practice, and it’s an energy that Amanda wishes to deliver through her work.
